Been going here for over 10 years, the foods got slowly worse over the last two. Everything tastes a bit salty, sometimes it comes out dry round the edges, presumably from the microwave and the staff aren't as attentive as they used to be. This has happened the last three times we've been and we've decided not to go back... More

Have been here many times and the best Chinese soup I've ever eaten as is the crispy duck. The all you can eat is brilliant as its cooked fresh and there a number of beautiful Malaysian dishes to compliment the usual Chinese choices. Service is always good and you never feel rushed and you're made really welcome. The only thing... More

I was able to get yummy Indonesian food while my niece and nephew ordered generous Chinese entrees. The operators were friendly and accommodating, ordering us a cab to be sure that we got to the ferry terminal on time. The décor was modern and intriguing. The whole place had an atmosphere of fun.

Visited the night before sailing to France. We were really pleased with the quality of the food. It was really tasty and flavoursome and perfectly cooked. There was more than enough for the four of us. If we visited again we would only order 1 rice & 1 chips. Would highly recommend.

I have been getting take out deliveries from here for the last 4 years and have rarely been disappointed (unlike most other Chinese take outs in Pompey). I have also eaten in and the food is consistently good and I always recommend to my friends & family for a sit down also. The all you can eat option for £15... More

Very friendly atmosphere, the service is really good. Food is very very good and you have lots to choose from. You have Malaysia which is a bit spicy which I love brings a whole new lot of flavours. You will not be disappointed
